Survivor 38.2 “One Of Us Is Going To Win The War”

Hi y’all!

Well, I can’t say that I was shocked to see Keith voted out last night.  In the days before the merge, when Survivor is still a group game, you have to be good at challenges or else your automatically going to be a target.  Last night, the Manu Tribe lost their second immunity challenge in a row and, though there was a lot of blame to go around, Keith certainly didn’t help.  Keith only made things worse by refusing to take responsibility for his bad performance.

So, Keith was voted out by a vote of 6-1-1.  The other two votes went to Kelley and Wendy, who were both targets before Keith’s terrible challenge performance.  I’m not sure who voted for Kelley and Wendy because, for the first time that I can remember, they didn’t show us who voted for who during the closing credits.  Obviously, one of those votes was cast by Keith.  The other one may have been cast by Chris, who was close to Keith.  Maybe we’ll find out next week.

After Keith was voted out, he had his decision to make.  Would he leave the game or would he join Reem on Edge of Extinction beach.  Keith stood there staring at the sign, repeatedly saying that he didn’t know what to do.  Personally, I think that if you have any hesitation about continuing the game then you need to leave.  I’m not sure if Keith was just playing it up for the camera or if he’s really that indecisive.  Either the way, Keith really did not come out of this episode looking good.  The episode ended on a cliffhanger.  Personally, I’m kinda hoping Keith just goes home because I can’t imagine him somehow becoming less annoying if he sticks around.

As for the rest of the show:

Reem is miserable on Edge of Extinction beach and she says that she might be forced to voluntarily leave if she doesn’t get some company soon.

On the Kama Tribe, Aubry is trying really hard to fit in with everyone and, because she’s got one of the worst social games that I’ve ever seen, she’s pretty much failing miserably.  She’s been assuring everyone on the tribe that they remind her of her.  As a result, no one trusts her and if Kama ever does go to tribal, she could be in some trouble.

On the Manu Tribe, David and RIck have formed a tight two-person alliance.  It’s a fun alliance because they’re both kinda dorky but likable.  I’m hoping that the David/Rick alliance is around for a while.

Speaking of being around for a while, Lauren found an immunity idol.  Showing herself to be a smarter than a lot of previous players, Lauren hid the idol and said that she wasn’t going to tell anyone — not even Kelley Wentworth — that she had it.

Coming up next week: Wendy survived tribal council but will she survive what appears to be a broken foot!?  We’ll find out.  If Wendy is medically evacuated from the game, Manu may go down in history as one of the most unlucky tribes in Survivor history!

    Keith’s indecision at the end shows he was the right person voted off. If he can’t decide if he wants to stay in the game he shouldn’t have been there in the first place. I doubt Wendy goes home next week. The person they highlight as in danger in the previews never seems to actually go home.

      I think that indecision was coached, or suggested. Unlike last week when I thought Reem’s reaction was perfectly natural, she improved in my eyes after that. But her scene at the EoE was a bit coachy. Not sure that’s a word. But I realize they are trying to tell a story. Wendy might be evacuated, that looked bad.

    Let me decision for Keith — go home!

    I just don’t understand why some people go on Survivor and not practice before they leave. Learn to swim, learn to start fire, learn to use a machete, learn to balance on small objects, practice puzzles, etc. Same with TAR, I hate it when people don’t know how to drive a stick shift!

    Lisa Marie, thanks for the recap and I hope you are feeling better.

    Hi LMB and Survivor Lovers… Yes it was time for Keith to go. Not knowing how to swim, I wonder if he ever watched Survivor. I’ll have to go read his bio. We do know that many are cast and really don’t know the show. I imagine that it may be difficult to find good candidates from volunteers to maintain ‘diversity’ of castaways sometimes. But he did try to learn when he heard he was going on. It’s the tribes fault too in losing in not having a leader or anyone to tell Keith to get the hell off the stand after he kept missing. He won’t survive EoE, but there may be safety in numbers with Reem. I imagine they will have to battle back after they get a few there. Or maybe they will let them back in after the merge and have a bunch of back to back tribals. That would be fun.

    I agree about the David/Rick alliance. They will be fun to watch, both smart guys. Not sure Wendy will last either. I loved that Lauren found the idol after hearing her talk about wanting to find one so bad. And she is being smart about it, although I’m not sure how safe that hiding spot is.

    Deb talking about TAR, looking forward to that, do you know when it starts up, Lisa? Yeah, not knowing how to drive a stick is right up there with not being able to swim.
